2. The Price of the Ticket: James Baldwin Revisited

In the days leading up to the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States of America, we have a responsibility to expand our knowledge of the history of this country and how civil rights advancements, if any, can be attributed to our continued struggle for equity through a myriad of lenses.  To that end, we who hold closely our commitment of service to community as Creatives who define, investigate, and unpack the cultural landscape of society, must continue to craft containers to invite our community to explore the nuances of politics, space, art, and humanity. The Price of The Ticket” featuring the provocative and prophetic voice of writer and activist James Baldwin
